Radeon HD 7790 vs Radeon RX 560

Intro

The Radeon HD 7790 uses a 28 nm design. AMD has clocked the core frequency at 1000 MHz. The GDDR5 RAM works at a speed of 1500 MHz on this model. It features 896 SPUs along with 56 Texture Address Units and 16 ROPs.

Compare all of that to the Radeon RX 560, which uses a 14 nm design. AMD has set the core frequency at 1175 MHz. The GDDR5 memory works at a speed of 7000 MHz on this specific card. It features 1024 SPUs along with 64 TAUs and 16 Rasterization Operator Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

Radeon RX 560 80 Watts
Radeon HD 7790 85 Watts
Difference: 5 Watts (6%)

Memory Bandwidth

The Radeon RX 560 should theoretically perform just a bit faster than the Radeon HD 7790 in general. (explain)

Radeon RX 560 114688 MB/sec
Radeon HD 7790 96000 MB/sec
Difference: 18688 (19%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon RX 560 should be quite a bit (approximately 34%) better at anisotropic filtering than the Radeon HD 7790. (explain)

Radeon RX 560 75200 Mtexels/sec
Radeon HD 7790 56000 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 19200 (34%)

Pixel Rate

If using lots of anti-aliasing is important to you, then the Radeon RX 560 is superior to the Radeon HD 7790, though not by far. (explain)

Radeon RX 560 18800 Mpixels/sec
Radeon HD 7790 16000 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 2800 (18%)

Please note that the above 'benchmarks' are all just theoretical - the results were calculated based on the card's specifications, and real-world performance may (and probably will) vary at least a bit.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the largest amount of information (counted in MB per second) that can be moved across the external memory interface in one second. It's calculated by multiplying the interface width by its memory speed. If it uses DDR type memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the card's memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, HDR and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that can be processed per second. This figure is calculated by multiplying the total amount of texture units of the card by the core speed of the chip. The better the texel rate, the better the graphics card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels applied in a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels the graphics card can possibly record to its local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated by multiplying the amount of Raster Operations Pipelines by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel fill rate also depends on many other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the max fill rate.
